Several companies offer events which allow your team or company to build teamwork and collaboration skills while building bikes that are then donated to needy kids via a nonprofit or charity. This is a great way to build teams while making a meaningful contribution to the world.

Bike building activities are generally facilitated by a consulting company, we highly recommend contacting any of the providers listed on this page to help you facilitate your event.

Bicycle Dream from HTC Events

Bicycle dream is the famous bike building charity event, and it is one of the oldest but most powerful tools to develop CSR awareness while creating a collaborative energy across teams. It is a widely used team building activity all over the world and has a tangible and memorable outcome, whose impacts last for the lifetime.

This is a hands-on challenge where teams of five work together to build bicycles for a children’s charity. In order to do this, we will provide each team all of the bicycle parts and a series of tools and materials. We then will ask them to mount these bicycle parts together within a limited time frame. While the hands-on work is getting done, teams will realize that they have some missing bicycle parts and lack of some tools. Sharing the missing items will force the teams to collaborate with each other, instead of competing against.

Once the building phase is over, we will give the teams their last assignment. They will now decorate all the bicycles with balloons, colorful wraps, and a personalized card with their team number. The guests will surely know that they are building those bicycles for children, but what they do not know is, children will be coming to get their the bicycles themselves.

When we line up all the bikes on the podium, all participants generally think that this is the last stage of the event. This is where our moderator will cut-in and announce the surprising news: “Ladies and Gentleman, we have learned that our bespoken charity and the children are here to receive their bikes”. As the children step in, we start hearing the cheers and applause from the crowd. This little teary but a very influential ending wraps up with a closing speech and a group photo.

We will have fully equipped technicians on-site to inspect all bicycles carefully before delivering them to children. Furthermore, the technicians will be supervising the teams in the event of a team’s failure to build the bike.

The Charity Bike Build – Together We Care

In this terrific bicycle building for charity event, teams armed with wrenches and enthusiasm as they race to construct the ultimate human-powered, no-gasoline-needed rocket: children’s bicycles. From the creative folks at TeamBonding – our facilitators have helped hundreds of companies just like yours build bikes for kids for charity (more than 12,000 bicycles and counting) around the world. One of your fondest childhood memories is probably the day you received your very first bicycle for your birthday or Christmas, wrapped with a big bow around the handlebars. You probably spent all summer outside, cycling around with your friends, or going on rides through the woods with your family. But for the many impoverished families throughout America, it can be tough to afford the cost of food and rent, let alone luxuries like toys and bikes. Although bicycling can help children build coordination and self-esteem, and provides a wonderful source of exercise, many kids are forced to go without this cherished childhood pastime. For most of the children involved, typically ages 7-9, this will be their first bicycle! We partner with charities such as Boys and Girls Clubs and Bikes for Tykes. We’re also happy to partner with a local charity of your choice.

Bikes For Tikes

What is Bikes for Tikes? The Bikes for Tikes training is a customized workshop with one of the following learning outcomes: Improved team performance, Enhanced sales techniques, Polished customer service, or Improved leadership skills. After a briefing, including theory, assessments and reflection, your team begins a series of tailor-made, problem-solving simulations. Debriefs follow each activity to discuss strengths and areas of improvement. Subsequent simulations provide practice and improvement of new skills. After each simulation, participants are rewarded with parts to a brand new bicycle. After the group has accumulated all necessary parts and tools to build the bike, the timed assembly begins. Underprivileged children are selected in the city of your training through our partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of America. Neither the team nor the children realize they are about to share a very special experience. Important: Participants do not know their efforts will benefit children from the community and the children do not know they will be given brand new bikes. …We ensure this element of surprise by renaming the program one of the following: The Nuts and Bolts of Sales; The Nuts and Bolts of Teams, The Nuts and Bolts of Leadership or, The Nuts and Bolts of Customer Service. Your team can know the learning outcomes of the training, but keep the bikes and children a secret. Shhhh! What are the benefits of Bikes for Tikes? Participants gain an amazing sense of organizational pride, better understanding of purpose and improved rapport with co-workers, a deeper commitment and motivation to individual and organizational goals, and a feeling of connection with the community and the children. Participants also gain a new understanding of and commitment to better teamwork, improved sales, enhanced customer service and/or superior leadership depending on the focus you choose. What you get comes from what you give. You will be donating one brand new DiamondBack™ bicycle, one helmet and one lock for every five people in your group.

Charity Team Building Events

It’s far from new, but bicycle team building is still one of the hottest charity team building events, and with good reason! When you see executives working together with their employees to build bicycles knowing it will go to a deserving child – it’s pretty impactful! A question we often get from our more mechanically-inclined clients – why does it take two hours to build a single bike? That’s a great question! I know that after helping our clients build thousands of bikes, our facilitators could probably assemble one in five minutes while being blindfolded! IF, and only if, they had the tools and the parts! The key behind the bicycle team building workshop isn’t just about having fun and building some bikes, it’s about learning to work together both in individual teams AND as a part of the much larger group.

Wheels of the World

Do you recall your first bicycle? Remember the fun, the adventure, the freedom? Wheels for the World offers your team the chance to pass those feelings on to a child by building and donating bikes for kids. Anyone can assemble a bike (well, almost anyone) if they receive all of the parts, a few tools, and the instructions. But, in Wheels for the World, teams must earn the parts by participating in fun team building challenges. Each activity is funnier than the last in this energy-filled session. During this team building activity, teams work to earn the front tire, seat, handle bars, and pedals, they are simultaneously building teamwork, strengthening relationships and developing trust. (By the way, a cycling professional will be on hand to make sure the bikes are assembled properly.) The biggest surprise of the day is yet to come. Once the bikes are assembled, you will have the opportunity to decorate them with a colorful, personalized card and lots of balloons, beads and stickers. Teams perform a fun skit or commercial about their bike at the end and everyone thinks this is the grand finale. But wait… We line up the bikes in the front of the room so that your team can admire their handiwork. Then, participants close their eyes and are told to imagine the looks on the children’s faces when they receive their new bikes. But what if they didn’t have to imagine? Shhhhh, don’t tell say anything, but we will make arrangements to bring the children to your team building program where your staff will present the bikes directly to kids. Kids are jumping for joy… adults get a little misty-eyed (that’s right, even the big strong guys)! In Wheels for the World, your team will share a heart-felt bonding experience and know that they’ve done something truly impactful for the community.

Bike Build Donation

THE BEST NEW BIKE BUILD IDEA IN 20 YEARS! Bike Build Donations are one of our most popular CSR programs. After organizing and delivering the best Bike Builds in America for the past 20 years, we proudly announce the future of this very popular giveback program. With help from our SmartHunts® App and a ton of Apple iPads®, we have created the most fun, fast-paced, hi-energy, hi-tech Bike Build program in the world! Our Bike Build Donation now feature Apple iPads® delivering text, audio and video clues, exciting gaming challenges, and the ability to capture and save all your memories of this truly heartwarming event with photos and video of your team in action. Our Bike Build Donation is one of our clients' most popular philanthropic team building programs, and every bicycle your group builds comes with a cool helmet and a lock for safety and security. After a fun icebreaker to get everyone “in gear,” your group will be formed into teams and receive their tool kits and iPads. Teams with correct answers to their iPad challenges will be rewarded with a trip to our bike store, to get the parts they need for the build. Teams will utilize the tools of organization, delegation, communication - and some mechanical skills - to build their bikes and complete the fun challenges presented on their iPads. After the bikes have been built, our bike mechanic will inspect them, so your teams can race them on an Obstacle Course set up nearby. After the race, teams will add bike accessories and personal touch decorations. At the conclusion of the program, your group can present these beautiful, finished bicycles to deserving children - accompanied by a local charity representative who will address your group and thank you for your donation. If your group would like to have children attend the bike build program, it is predicated on the program ending after school hours and the charity’s ability to provide transportation for the children and families to our program location. We can work with any charitable organization your group chooses - or we can engage one of the many charities we use, including Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and the Boys and Girls Club of America. 
Our Bike Build Donation will strengthen your team and touch their hearts - while putting smiles on faces of the children receiving your generous donation. It will be a day that all will remember. An event where everyone wins!

Bikes for Tykes

Imagine the sense of achievement your team members will feel after building a bike from scratch! When they find out the bikes will be donated to a local kids’ charity, this fun and challenging exercise takes on a deeper meaning and gives everyone a warm, fuzzy glow. Teams will complete a series of tasks and challenges in order to earn the pieces of their bike. Once all pieces have been collected, building the bike can begin. When the bike is fully built, each team must bring their bike to a qualified mechanic who will give the bike a “once over” and report on any defects to the judges. The first team to have their bike built and approved will be crowned champions for the day. Once the bikes are complete, each team finds out that their bike is to be donated to a local kids’ charity. Medals are presented and the kids collect their bikes.

Watching these children’s faces light up with delight is one of the highlights of this event. This team building event will energize your team, help them communicate more effectively and get them active and having fun. We do this by giving each team most, but not all, the resources they need completely build the bicycles. The equipment necessary to completely finish a bicycle is found with the other teams. Teams must come together, share resources and align strategies in order to be successful. Team Commercial Presentation: As part of the Bikes for Kids Charity event, each team is challenged to create a commercial advertising their bike. The commercials are judged on creativity, humor, teamwork and relevance to your meeting’s theme. This commercial can be tied in to any aspect of your company including: new product launch, company values, goals, meeting/conference theme, etc. Business application: Part of the give and take between teams creates challenges around cooperation vs. competition, breaking the “silo effect” and communicating effectively across departments. The teams engage in a self-facilitated debrief and explore ideas on how to break down these barriers between teams. At the end of the debrief each team reports out to the other teams their key learning and insights.
